Want to know what is happening in Israel? The following Israel newspapers and publications are some of the best resources for news in the country, and I use them frequently to stay on top of things. Also important to note is that all three newspapers I list below are available in Hebrew as well as English.
Before we start though, here is an updated daily Twitter news feed from Breaking Israel News that you can use to stay in the loop:Tweets by @BINAlerts
Yediot Aharonot, or its online version Ynet.co.il, is the most popular and widely read newspaper in Israel. The name simply means “latest news” in Hebrew.
Among all of the Israeli newspapers Yediot has the most updated editions, especially the online version. As far as breaking news in Israel, Yediot is the best. The writing is high quality and the areas covered include politics, Israel’s foreign relations, economy, culture, sports and a bunch of other subjects. I would definitely recommend this paper to you if you want a quick glance at the latest Israeli news.
Haaretz is considered a more sophisticated newspaper from the various Israeli newspapers, which addresses the more educated crowd. It is also considered politically to be somewhat slanted toward the left wing. However, it is a great read (especially on the weekends) with many interesting columns and articles.
If you are interested in the economy and business in Israel this is the daily newspaper for you. Its online version is up to date and covers the major business stories of the day in Israel.
There are a number of other Hebrew and Arabic newspapers around the country but the ones I listed above are the main ones I recommend.
I hope I gave you enough resources of Israel daily news to cover all that is important for you to know. I know it is more than enough for me…
